There’s more than one way to eat an onion! This is a treasured collection of award-winning recipes beginning with the first Vidalia® Onion Festival Cook-Off in 1978. The Vidalia Woman’s Club cookbook committee spent countless hours researching available resources
in an effort to feature Vidalia® Onion Festival Cook-Off award winning recipes and the
names of the cooks who submitted them. We thought a cookbook would be a great way to preserve our community’s legacy and to raise funds for the club.

Some of the recipes were found in the local library in micro-fiche files, others were recovered from back issues of The Advance at the newspaper office, and in some cases, the cookbook
team tracked down former winners and did interviews.

We celebrate the quote by Julia Child,
“It’s hard to imagine civilization without onions.”
